The LHEEA is looking for a Post-Doct for the WIND2SIM project

The topic of this post-doc is: "Turbulent boundary condition for floating offshore wind turbine simulation: coupling wind tunnel data to aeroelastic codes"

on April 7, 2020

Work plan

Based on an experimental database acquired in the atmospheric wind tunnel, the applicant will be
in charge of:
  • developing a methodology to model of the temporal dynamics of the flow developing downstream of a floating wind turbine modelling,
  • testing spatial extrapolating/interpolating methods to adapt the experimental data onto the mesh of the targeted numerical simulation,
  • comparing the performance of the derived method with more classical approaches (such as those available in TurbSim / FAST),
  • performing preliminary aeroelastic simulations with FAST using the derived methodology.

Applicant profile, prerequisites.

Phd in Fluid Mechanics, skills in experimental data processing, low-order modelling, data-driven
modelling. Knowledge of the wind energy context and challenges are appreciated.
